I took the bearings in to a local auto store to check on replaceing them (Bearing #:8502-k and 8503-k). They want $48 a piece for them! Wowzas. I found them online after S&H for about $63 total. I tihnk I’ll do that. But then I am getting antsy and the company told me they are a special order part so it’d probably be 3 weeks before they even ship! So my dilema is that I want to cut now, but don’t want to spend $100. So I was talking to my dad and he suggested if they weren’t to hard to take on and off put the old ones back on until the new ones arrive.. They feel smooth and tight so I think I’ll do that. Finally got some time that I can take my knives to the sharpening shop (They run bankers hours). So those should be done soon as well. Patience.
On a side note, I bought a Craftsman Model # 113.248321 12” tilting head bandsaw off of CL today for $50. The lady said he hardly used it, just needs a little cleaning.
